Three hours and ten minutes up, two hours and forty five minutes down. For an eastern mountain it was a hard core climb.

Went up via Rainbow Falls (nice!) and down via Alum Cave. Made sure to tag the summit as a side trip.

An icy hike from Newfound Gap. The summit cairn is actually shorter than it was when I last visited. Had the place all to myself!

Hiked in fog until descent. Trail was wet but we managed in trail runners. Couldn't believe the foot traffic going back down.

eliotjgCoolest hike in the South

Climbed with family in 2010. It's got a lot going for it for a Southern mountain, and I think that Cliff Tops has the most stunning view in the park. I'm glad there's not a road to the top.

cwharringtonlawPost Hurricane Snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 10, 2012
First hike with my fiance after proposing the day before in Asheville. Took Alum Cave Trail after a hurricane rolled through and dumped snow on the upper half of the mountain. Weather was solid for the hike and the snow made things a little more interesting than they would have otherwise been.

This was one of my first real hikes. Great day, met a lot of fun people along the way. From the peak it's worth going out to the two endpoints, adds a mile or so, but not a lot of gain and great views over the actual peak.

I love Mt Leconte. It's the real fun peak to hike in the Nat'l Park. Though it can be crowded, i've hiked it using a couple different trails. This day we took the popular Alum Trail. Great weather again, i'll never complain when in the Smokies....

LeConte is an awesome mountain for training for other climbs. I used it to training for Kilimanjaro and for the rockies. I climbed the Rainbow Falls trail on LeConte 5 straight days on the second week of July as my final test for Kilimanjaro.

The rhododendrons along the way were incredible. It was like hiking in an aerial garden.

Great hike via Alum Cave Trail, and one of the best mountains I've climbed in the southeast. Loved it!
